Video of the Week-Electric Messiah

Recently the guys of Symphony X ran a contest where they asked their fans to send in homemade videos for their new single “Electric Messiah” to win a bundle of Symphony X swag.  I think that a contest like this is a great idea for a band to do.  It gives the fans another way to show their fandom and creates a more personal relationship between the fans and the band.  It’s much cooler than the enter you e-mail and answer this ridiculously simple question for a chance to win, those who want the prize actually have to work for it.  I hope to see more contests like this in the future.  Here are the top 3 winners.  If you haven’t checked out the latest album from the NJ progsters Iconoclast do so, it’s an absolutely killer album.  What do you guys and gals think?  Enjoy!! Peace Love and Metal!!!!

2nd and 3rd place after the jump.

  1. I think that is pretty cool how they reached out to their fans like that. It was fun to watch those. Thanks for finding and sharing that.

    • I also noticed that Sepultura had a contest like this going on to. This would be a trend I could get behind. A cool prize would to give the winner a decent budget and some help and let them do the professional official video.
